Writing Studio - Email Consultations

Consultations over Email

Are you in an online class or unable to make it to campus when we're open? The Writing Studio now offers consultations over email utilizing the same strategies we use onsite. Consultants will read your draft and respond with written feedback within twenty-four hours of submission.

How do I receive feedback over email?

  • Make an appointment first. Log into our online scheduling system at tutortrac.humboldt.edu and schedule a 50-minute email consultation. You can also call our front reception desk, 707-826-5217, and let us know you'd like to set up an appointment for an email-based writing consultation.
  • Once you make an appointment, you'll get an email verifying your session and consultant.
  • Submit your draft using the online submission form. Be sure to submit your draft at least an hour before your appointment. Drafts should be no more than five pages (double-spaced).

The consultant will then read your draft and provide feedback with your primary concerns in mind. You will receive your draft with comments within 24 hours of your appointment time (i.e. if your appointment is at 11:00am on a Tuesday, you will receive your feedback by 11:00am on Wednesday). Please note you will need to revise the draft and make a new appointment if you would like additional feedback.
